Of the three theaters listed by judyh it appears the Admiral lasted the longest and the Murray went first. The Baltis closed second of the three for good on Sunday, May 23, 1954, with Katharine Hepburn & Humphrey Bogart in the 1951 John Huston film THE AFRICAN QUEEN, John Wayne & Randolph Scott in the 1942 film PITTSBURGH, and Edgar Bergen & Charlie McCarthy in the 1941 film LOOK WHO’S LAUGHING.

My uncle owned 3 theaters in K.C. during the 1940’s. He and his partners owned the Baltis, the Murray and the Admiral. He would often make the rounds of them and take me and my cousin with him – we were about 8-10 years old. It was very cool because we could get free popcorn. But we only got to see about 20-30 minutes of a movie at each theater. Good memories. As I recall, the Murray only showed cowboy movies.
